    Know When to Clean Your Oriental Rug

    Posted by

    It’s no secret that the best way to keep your Persian rugs and Oriental rug clean and protected is to have them cleaned routinely… but how do you know when your area rug needs to be cleaned?

    • Dusting – Rug dusting is recommended every 6-12 months.  Regular rug dusting is critical, as it removes dry soil from your rug’s fiber and backing, including dust, sand, dander, hair, dirt, debris, and more.  Rugs that are located in high traffic areas of your home can hold a surprising amount of soil and dust in their fibers.  In fact, our rug dusting tool will often remove several pounds of debris from a rug, even when the owner brings it in routinely!  The best rug cleaning services are equipped with rug dusting tools that loosen and remove these soils mechanically through intense vibrations.  This process is gentle on the rug, yet highly effective at removing soils from deep within the rug’s fibers.
    • Maintenance Cleaning – Maintenance cleaning is recommended every 12-18 months.  The maintenance cleaning process will vary among rug cleaning companies, but should include a full inspection, dusting and dry soil removal, low moisture cleaning, a neutralizing rinse, and a thorough drying.  This process, when done by the best professional rug cleaner you can find, will keep your rug clean and protected.
    • Deep Cleaning – It is recommended that you get your rug deep cleaned every 2-3 years.  The best professional rug cleaning companies specialize in deep cleaning packages, which should include dusting and dry soil removal, deep submersion and hand wash in a rug bath, a neutralizing rinse, and a number of other services that are customized to your rug’s unique needs, including the application of a stain protector or brightening of the rug’s fringe.  
    • Restorative Cleaning – There are occasions where a rug may require more than the standard cleaning procedures.  For example, a rug that has been forgotten in a dusty attic or storage facility will likely require a restorative cleaning, as will a rug that has been severely contaminated by pet urine stains, or damaged in flood water, or suffered from an infestation of bugs or mildew.  In some cases, this damage may be irreparable.  However, if there is one thing that could potentially revive a rug from such a disaster, it’s a restorative cleaning, performed by a team of great professional rug cleaners.  

    Dust, dirt, and debris are highly corrosive and damaging to your rug’s fibers, but a great professional rug cleaner can help!  At RugPro Oriental Rug Cleaning, we specialize in gently but thoroughly removing all debris from wool and silk rugs.  We have the best rug dusting equipment on the market, and a world class rug bath cleaning system to ensure your rug is cleaned gently and thoroughly.  RugPro is the best rug cleaning company Jacksonville FL homeowners love to call on for the highest quality rug cleaning and the best in customer care.
